Christian Product Expo™ (CPE)
Christian Product Expo™ (CPE) is a tradeshow for member retailers. CPE is a three day show that features one full day of spiritual nourishment, a half day of training sessions and roundtable discussions and one and half days of tradeshow buying time. The focus of CPE is on buying product for upcoming promotional seasons; however, exhibiting vendors feature their full lines for your buying convenience.
Member retailers are reimbursed for their show expenses based on the number of orders they place. At past CPEs, over 95% of attending retailers have received the maximum possible reimbursement by meeting or exceeding the order requirements. Evening banquets provide a refreshing time of fellowship, while artist and author showcases allow you to hear the heart of the people whose products you sell.
